Junior League of New Orleans

Freret 5K

Coming Fall 2016

The Junior League of New Orleans would like to all those who supported the 2015 Freret 5K. It was a fabulous event, bringing together local businesses, Freret neighbors, runners, and walkers to promote family fitness in our community.  

Over 600 participants hit Freret Street for the morning’s festivities. After a half-mile fun run and 5K run/walk, everyone enjoyed a variety of refreshments from local restaurants and entertainment from the Tulane Jazz Band.  Donations from JLNO members and the public sponsored more than 80 youth runners.  

Together, we raised over $30,000 to advance the wellbeing of women. Your support helped continue our efforts to make this a marquee event within the Freret neighborhood for years to come. Registrations, business sponsorships, and donations combine with 50,000 hours of direct volunteer service by JLNO members to impact the lives of those in Metropolitan New Orleans.


Beginning and ending at JLNO’s Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Shop, this 5K and half-mile fun run:

  • showcases a vibrant economic corridor,
  • promotes family fitness, and
  • raises funds for JLNO’s community projects and volunteer efforts.

JLNO has been a member of the Freret community for 55 years with its Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store and believes this exciting event further encourages the health and wellness of the City’s citizens and businesses.
